Big Brother Naija viewers have noticed that too often, housemate Tobi uses derogatory phrases that dismisses the personhood and humanity of fellow housemate, Nina. And it is why they have called on Big Brother to sanction the use of such degrading language once and for all.
The drama started today when Tobi called the female colleague a “leftover food” during a chat with other housemates, and folks watching the spectacle got upset, especially because it is not the first time Tobi would be using such dehumanizing language to describe Nina.

Only last week, Big Brother dismissed housemates Khloe and K-Brule following their verbal fight, and also comedian Dee-One got a strike for his uncouth jokes. And it is for this reason folks are asking for Big Brother’s intervention.
If anything happen to Nina, if she break down emotionally, if these housemates continue to pick on her, belittle her like Tobi just did,we will come for them#BBNaija

“I hate it when a man bully a lady for no reason. Tell me what right Tobi has to call Nina left over food?” Said Twitter user @UGOLOCHUKA.
@GurloadEd_eVi added, “Biggie give Tobi a strike for calling Nina “left over food”. That’s so insensitive! Deliberately bringing others down. Housemates should learn to control their tongue. We shouldn’t condone nonsense in d name of jokes!!”
Will Big Brother call Tobi to order? See the reactions:

I think biggie should as a matter of urgency warn these housemates about picking on Nina and calling her names like Tobi did. They might end up making her believe that she is actually those names they call her.shocked those things have not yet gotten to her in a bad way. #BBNaija
